Penn State Students Riot After Joe Paterno Firing

 

The Penn Sate Board of Trustees abruptly fired beloved head football coach Joe Paterno and Penn State president Graham Spanier on Nov. 9, in light of the child sex scandal involving Paterno’s former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. The news whipped some students into a frenzy as they spilled into the streets and tipped over a news van. Two days later, thousands of students held a vigil for victims of sexual abuse.
